Print for Tiny Showcase!

By Nicole Gustafsson
Edition of 100
6 x 8 inches

I'm super excited to be part of Tiny Showcase again! Tiny Showcase features high quality affordable prints, and portions of the proceeds go to a charity of the artists choosing. Below is information about the charity I chose.

"Nicole has chosen the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers as her artwork's charity. The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers identifies teenagers with exceptional artistic and literary talent and brings their work to a national audience through The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. The Awards have a legacy dating back to 1923 and a noteworthy roster of past winners including Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath, Truman Capote, Richard Avedon, Robert Redford and Joyce Carol Oates. The Awards are an important opportunity for students to be recognized for their creative talents. Teens in grades 7 through 12 can apply in 30 categories of art and writing for the chance to earn scholarships and have their works exhibited or published. $250 dollars from the sale of Nicole's artwork will be donated to the organization."

I chose this organization to support because I had the opportunity to participate in it when I was in high school. It was very exciting and it helped me gain confidence in my artwork! It is so important for young people to have the opportunity to showcase their strengths in the arts and and I am very thankful for the art events I got to participate in growing up.

Visit Tiny Showcase to purchase the print. Thanks!
